    Learn the command line + every switch!

    Learn bash.

    sounds like a plan. I have heard that a lot of the test is command strings.

    I like command line, but I do find it frustrating how exams love obscure switches. What's the point? You remember the ones you need, and when you're at a PC you can always just hit up the 'man' pages. In Linux especially, there's so little consistency between different command line tools and their switches.

    Well done :) I quite like Linux now days so may take a look at this as a route to improving my overall experience with Linux.

    I must admit, Me too.
    I have only worked with Windows but recently I have started to use Linux and really enjoyed it.
    Think it will be really useful when "Big Data" really hits (If it hasnt already).

    Also two exams, 5 Certs...cant go wrong ha ha

    Starting to play more with Linux every day, looking at OpenStack at work so there is no getting away from it.
